Memorial for Axel

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office lost a prized K9 the last weekend in August, when Axel suffered a medical emergency while searching for a suspect. He was rushed to the Animal Hospital, where he later died. The KCSO and our local community has grieved his loss, as he was well-known here.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office has been overwhelmed by the show of support that they have received, and posted the following notice on their Facebook page:

“The love and support that has been shown to Deputy Stuart, our K9 Unit, and the entire #KCSOFamily since we lost K9 Axel has left us speechless. The cards, the cookies, the messages, the drawings, and more – they hold a very special place in our hearts, and we are so appreciative of them. We truly cannot thank you enough, Kent County and beyond.”

They are inviting everyone to attend a public memorial for K9 Axel on Saturday, September 18, at 11:00 a.m. at Cedar Springs High School’s Red Hawk Stadium located at 204 E Muskegon St N.E. 

“Please join us in honoring K9 Axel and his service to the residents of Kent County,” they said.
